O'Neil, Sharon Lund; Everett, Donna R.
This course is the seventh of seven in the Information Systems curriculum. The purpose of this capstone course is to build on skills acquired in the earlier courses. Emphasis is placed on realistic situations and challenges that exist in the automated office and for which information systems technology and skills are pertinent. These components are provided for each task area: behavioral objective, suggested teaching strategies, content, and summary. Topics covered include principles, skills, and knowledge needed by an information systems analyst, specialist, or high-level end-user; development of organizational and individual strategies to actuate information systems; identification of critical issues in the automated office; demonstration of skills such as negotiation, persuasion, leadership, interviewing, knowledge of subject and organizational structures, and communication to aid in the project planning process; and determination of factors in new and/or existing systems related to data and physical security and integrity. Appendixes include visuals (transparencies and other teacher materials), student materials (student handouts, work sheets, and exercise materials), evaluation (end-of-task and end-of-unit questions, test items, etc.), and references (including an eight-page bibliography, a list of job titles for information systems workers).
